The Omni-Bounce creates a diffused bare bulb effect, giving even coverage across the entire frame, with lenses from 15mm to 200mm in the 35mm format (and equal in other formats as well). The Omni-Bounce is easy to use and goes onto and off the flash in seconds with custom fitting (except for UNI model) and no touch fastener. Designed for years of service without the bulk of some other diffusers, it is small enough to fit easily into a gadget bag or pocket.

    Most agree that bounce flash pictures provide a more natural light than direct flash shots. One drawback, though, is the possibility of shadows under the eyes since the light is coming from above. (see picture) The Omni-Bounce allows the light to still head up to the ceiling for bouncing, but also directs some of it forward to fill in the shadows on the face. (see picture) The light is more diffuse and pleasing to look at.

    I use the Omni-Bounce for almost all of the candids taken at weddings, and some light fill flash for close outdoor photos.

    One thing I noticed was that it did not offer a wide enough diffusion for use with a 17mm wide angle lens and a full frame sensor camera. I did try a different product for that which was much larger and it did a good job. But for APS-C size sensors, or longer focal length lenses on full frame cameras, the Omni-Bounce did great.

    Overall, you can't beat the size and the price for a gadget that makes an immediate, positive impact on your flash photos.

    Diffuses light a bit too much for my tastes. I felt the light was way too soft and occasionally had a color cast, probably because the diffuse light reflected off everything in the room. I prefer the results of the Sto-Fen 2-way bounce flash instead. Its light is sharper and its height prevents red-eye.

          It's perfect for canon speedlite 550ex. I use it with my canon 70d and EF-S 10-22mm. The light from 550ex is softer than before and cover all of the 10mm focal length. Great product!

            My son and I both have the same cameras and flash units. For over a year he used this product - I did not have it. I could never match the quality of the photo using the flash when we were taking the same shot. I should have gotten this a long time ago.

              Use the Omni-Bounce for mid range portraits. Works super well to stop red eye. Even took photo's of pets and had no red(green) eye. Fit well on flash. Was delivered just as promised. Just needed to adjust flash power down and worked great.

(White, Gold, & Green) I tried one first and was hooked! Any serious Speedliter will indeed find these little diffusser domes a must have welcome addition to their lighting kit!

                    When used properly this gadget softens shadows and reduces glare. It will not cure bad shooting habits or oddball ambient lighting but it does what it is designed to do and does it very well. Given the very modest asking price, I can hardly think of a better and more useful value.

                    When you buy one of these you must buy the one that is designed for your flash or else buy the universal model. Specific model units do not properly fit other model flashes and Omni-Bounce never claimed that they would. Buy the right one and it's a fast and easy yet secure fit. Period.

                                The results of this little gem are great. We have them on all our flashes permanently.

                                    I tried to do my own DIY omni-bounce but didnt work out so well. So, I decided to just buy one. I have read my many good things about Sto-Fen's Omni bounce and it stands up. Works great and sturdy.

                                      I personally hate using flashes because of the harsh lighting they usually give. In a perfect world, we'd all be able to bounce the flash off a bright white ceiling above our subject and achieve flawless results.

                                      The Omnibounce almost gurantee's those flawless results and does it so easily, I cant figure out why the manufacturers dont include them or make them standard??

                                      For anyone using a off camera flash, the Omni-Bounce should be in your camera bag!

                                              Fits perfectly on the LumoPro LP160 Manual Flash

                                              Does what it says, but don't be fooled into thinking it will soften your light. I used it to help spread the light into a shoot through umbrella so that more of the brolly is lit.
